Andrew Fenton is a postdoctoral research fellow in the area of neuroethics in the Department of Bioethics at Dalhousie University.  His research interests map onto discussions in critical neuroscience, critically engaging the contemporary neurosciences in the broad areas of epistemology and metaphysics of mind.  Outside of neuroethics, his research interests include naturalized epistemology, animal ethics, philosophy of mind and the philosophy of animal cognition.  His most recent published work explores the philosophical foundations of the Neurodiversity movement, with a particular focus on Autism (Autism Spectrum "Disorders"); animal knowledge; the ethics of animal biomedical research; Buddhism and neuroethics.
